    Hey can you please help us with a problem that we have using the Icenium when we test in the simulator everything in all the simulators is working fine but when we build the app and test it on the device we have a strange problem - ot the iPad we have infinity scroll and on the Android tablet we have no scroll at all. The app is made from scratch (blank cross-platform) and the only thing that is put into it is the iframe - 
       <iframe src=""></iframe> .

    Hi Aleksandar,

    Using for the sample is a bad choice as it gives "Refused to display '' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'SAMEORIGIN'."

    We used instead:

    <iframe src="" width="1000px" height="1000px"></iframe>

    and deployed the app on iPad Mini (6.1.3) and Nexus 7 (Android 4.3) and we were able to scroll on both devices and successfully view the whole page.

    Hi Steve,

    I'm experiencing the same behavior on iOS7. Actually, iframe scrolls in an empty project however doesn't in kendo tab views.

    Is there a css change that can be useful?

    Hi IT,

    As said in your support ticket:
    "Basically, we do not encourage our clients to use iframe inside mobile applications. This is so, as the mobile browsers are still struggling in a lot of ways to support it. And overcoming one issue with iframe, normally leads to a bunch of others, just as in your case.

    However, as this appears to be the only straight forward way to achieve your goal, you can check if enabling the native scrolling for your kendo app fixes the issue.

    I hope this helps.
